SEED: The Untold Story
by Kim Kanney, Community Bookstore Manager

SEEDSEED: The Untold Story
Documentary on DVD
Produced by Marisa Tomei, Marc Turtletaub, and Phil Fairclough

In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, many are tirelessly fighting to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these reluctant heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds.

SEED: The Untold Story is an award-winning documentary about the dramatic loss of seed diversity and the future of our food, from the filmmakers behind Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us? and The Real Dirt on Farmer John. SEED features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, and Winona LaDuke.
